Now that I'm officially retired, I'm very much looking forward to reading again just for the enjoyment of reading instead of being forced to type and read medical reports for a living.
But I trust you will do the same.
The video of the Congressional hearing in 2004 to rein in Fannie and Freddie can probably be found in the library too if you're still interested.
Happy for you, that you are retired.

Libraries are technologically obsolete and mostly a waste of limited taxpayer funds, not only municipal libraries , but also school libraries. Mostly populated by homeless people.
Sad but true.
Time to move on.
There is a big problem in public libraries with porn. No wonder Lincoln suggests to go there.

Even Gov. Christie said it's pretty much all over but the cryin'.
Once the Feds turn off the printing presses and the rest of the world chooses a different standard of currency other than the American dollar WHICH THEY ARE ALREADY DOING, it really is going to be survival of the fittest.
Good thing I like rice and potatoes.
Better Costco than Walmart. " At Costco, we know that paying employees good wages makes good sense for business,... We pay a starting hourly wage of $11.50 in all states where we do business, and we are still able to keep our overhead costs low."

"That statement by Costco CEO and President Craig Jelinek is exactly what one would hope all CEOs and managers in this country would understand, but unfortunately is rarer then we would hope." Check this out: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/03/06/1192... #

I happen to be a "pack them up & send them home" person. But that is not really feasible. Why not allow the productive families stay, let the kids that basically grew up here stay. The rest won't quality under the bill.
I worked for a Texas company that basically hired Mexican workers. They learned fast & would work their butts off. Always wanting extra hours & extra shifts. They supported themselves & sent money home.
its very feasible,all that would need to be done is put the cost of their deportation on to the person or company's that hire them. Reguardless of how hard they work or how long they have been here they have still broken the law and should be deported and their employers have broken the law and should be forced to pay the cost. If they want to come back they can get in line and do it like others do legally . But befor even one is alowed to come the fence should be built and borders 100% secured.there is no benefit for America in this bill. None.

So do you see the problem--by your own post--they sent money home--to Mexico. They used the United States to make money and sent it home...all while being criminals, as in a country illegally.

Stephen Colbert has a show on Comedy Central immediately after Jon Stewart’s comedic news commentary program. The difference between the two is that Jon Stewart is generally more open to taking shots at Obama, but Colbert seems to be firmly partisan. Until now.

Last night, Stephen Colbert went off on Obama, literally referring to him as “a tyrannical despot who ignores all the rules”. For once, we fully agree. And there’s only one thing you should do to a tyrannical president: remove him from office.

As I wrote on my personal Facebook page:“Thousands of liberals are defending Obama by saying,‘Spying on Americans is fine, because Bush did it, too.’ One problem… that’s why they hate Bush. By their own principles, they should want to impeach Obama.”

North Carolina is the new Wisconsin, but not for the reasons McCrory alleges. Like in Wisconsin, a homegrown grassroots resistance movement has emerged—and grown rapidly—to challenge the drastic right-wing agenda unveiled by Republicans in the state. Just like the Koch brothers backed Scott Walker, the Koch’s billionaire ally and close associate Art Pope funded North Carolina’s Republican takeover in 2010 and 2012.(Only McCrory went a step further and actually named Pope to his inner circle as deputy budget director.) And North Carolina, like Wisconsin, is “a state fight with national implications,” says Rev. William Barber of the North Carolina NAACP. Republicans have imported a slew of ALEC-inspired policies in an attempt to turn the New South back into the Old Confederacy.

So you judge a person's political skill levels based on the relationship inside their marriage?

This speaks volumes about you.

Roosevelt screwed around on Eleanor. JFK on Jackie. Bubba Clinton on Hog Thighs Hillary. Obama on Moochelle(with men)

Colbert Study: Conservatives Don't Know He's Joking

This study investigated biased message processing of political satire in The Colbert Report and the influence of political ideology on perceptions of Stephen Colbert. Results indicate that political ideology influences biased processing of ambiguous political messages and source in late-night comedy. Using data from an experiment (N = 332), we found that individual-level political ideology significantly predicted perceptions of Colbert's political ideology. Additionally, there was no significant difference between the groups in thinking Colbert was funny, but conservatives were more likely to report that Colbert only pretends to be joking and genuinely meant what he said while liberals were more likely to report that Colbert used satire and was not serious when offering political statements. Conservatism also significantly predicted perceptions that Colbert disliked liberalism.

so...you're a conservative, aren't you?

If I read your post correctly, republicans took away some of that revenue. I take it you mean American tax payer dollars. They actually dared to expect folks to pay for services that they receive and that the taxpayers, not you, should pay for? That is definitely an alien thought to one like you, one with his hand out.
